Netflix has really gotten more and more popular over the last few years, but there are plenty of people who still haven’t made the switch from cable TV to Netflix. Of course, the best scenario is having both, but not everyone can afford to have both. If you’re trying to choose between keeping cable or getting a Netflix subscription, here are five reasons Netflix is better than cable TV.
Netflix is a lot cheaper. When I say a lot, I mean a LOT! The highest tier payment of Netflix, which entitles you to stream Netflix on four screens is only $15.99, cheaper than even the cheapest bundle of cable TV channels. In addition, if you watch on only one screen at a time, you can get by with paying only $12.99 a month for unlimited streaming.
#2- Watch Anytime
With Netflix, you can watch movies or TV series whenever you want to. You don’t have to be home at a specific time in order to sit down and watch at a certain time every week. You can watch whenever you have time. Also, you can watch a quick TV series on your bus ride to work. Even watch while you’re cooking or when you can’t sleep. When you watch is completely up to you because the movie or TV series doesn’t start until you click on it!
Although it may not be recommended, you can binge-watch on Netflix anytime as well. The only time you can binge-watch on cable TV is when they have a specific show marathon. Then, you have to watch it when they show it. On Netflix, if you decide you want to stay in this weekend, you can watch a whole season’s episodes if you want to. Think about when you’re sick and just want to watch your show. With Netflix, you can watch show after show well, you get the picture!
#4- Different Shows
You can always find something different to watch. How many times have you stared at the preview channel, unable to find anything to watch? How many times have you flipped through channel after channel, just to end up right back where you started and still there’s nothing to watch? With Netflix, you can always find something to watch. Their library is full of thousands and thousands of titles, all waiting for you just to click on them.
#5- Original Programming
They even have shows no other channel does. Surely you’ve heard of Stranger Things, which really gained a ton of popularity after just the first season. You can’t watch it anywhere else other than Netflix. In addition, they have original programming in just about every genre you can think of, Marco Polo, The Ranch, Sense 8, Mindhunter, House of Cards, and Black Mirror, just to name a few, all original, all only on Netflix.
Of course, having both cable TV and Netflix is best, but if you have to choose between the two, Netflix just makes more sense and it saves you money. Netflix is planning on spending a bunch more money this coming year on new shows and movies as well. Don’t miss out!
